Load Restrictions

Notice: Half load restrictions will begin early this year due to weather.  Signs will be posted on Tuesday, February 21st, 2023 to begin the half load season.

The Township of Cavan Monaghan applies load restrictions during the "spring break up" period when a road base is at its weakest condition as ground frost thaws and melts. Signs will be posted for March 1st and will be removed on May 1 or when it is deemed that the restrictions are no longer needed.

Periods of reduced vehicle loading is enforced on select Township roads that may be susceptible to damage.  Load restrictions apply only when the signs are displayed on the roadway. 

Vehicles exceeding the 5 tonne per axle load restriction must take alternate routes or will be subject to penalties described in the Highway Traffic Act.
